IVF : Myths & Facts Check

IVF : Myths & Facts Check

4 myths on IVF you should stop believing right now

In-vitro fertilisation (IVF) is one of the popular Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ART) for treating infertility and helping couples to conceive. The process involves the fertilisation of the egg with the sperm in a laboratory and thereafter, inserting the embryo formed, into the uterus. But lack of understanding about the topic has given rise to a number of myths such as:

Myth 1: IVF increases your fertility levels

Instead of making you more fertile, IVF stops your natural fertility cycle. This is usually done through hormones that are taken at the beginning of the process. The aim of such an action is to essentially put an end to your natural fertility process and create in its place an artificial cycle.

Myth 2: IVF hormone injections make you prone to uncontrollable emotions

In actuality, IVF hormone injections don’t cause you to suffer from out of control emotions but make you happier. This is because they come packed with the female hormone oestrogen, which produce endorphins (brain chemicals) that give you a sense of wellbeing.  The wave of emotions that you end up experiencing is a result of the stress and anxiety surrounding the success of a cycle.  

Myth 3: IVF never fails but is always successful

The success of the procedure depends on a number of factors such as quality and quantity of embryos and age. It is said that chances of conception decreases with age, with women above 40 reporting reduced fertility potential as well as success rate. On the other hand, women below the age of 35 have about 41% chance of getting pregnant.

Myth 4: It causes you to have triplets or twins

No, it’s not necessary for multiple births to take place if you opt for IVF. You can reduce the prospect of having twins or triplets by cutting down on the number of embryos that get inserted into the uterus. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an IVF Specialist.

Vitamin D Deficiency - 6 Signs That You are Suffering from it

MBBS
General Physician, Jalgaon
Vitamin D Deficiency - 6 Signs That You are Suffering from it

Vitamin D is a crucial vitamin that is soluble in fat. Vitamin D is essential for the growth of your bone and it ensures increased flow of calcium into your bloodstream by promoting the process of its absorption from the consumed food. Poor concentration of vitamin D may result in the development of rickets in children and osteoporosis in adults. Vitamin D is important in maintaining the immunity of your system; deficiency of vitamin D gives rise to a number of health problems including cardiac disorders, arthritis, hypertension, diabetes and even cancer.

Daily exposure to mild sunlight helps to synthesize Vitamin D in body. Dietary sources include milk, cod liver oils, fish, meat, fortified dairy and food products.

The most reliable way to diagnose the deficiency of vitamin D is through blood test; it is the most effective method of measuring the level of vitamin D in your blood. The following are some dominant symptoms of vitamin D deficiency:

  1. Influenza: According to studies, vitamin D acts a guard against the attack of a number of respiratory infections which are widespread in children. Hence, lack of vitamin D in children is responsible for the development of various respiratory tract infections and diseases.
  2. Depression and Schizophrenia: The root cause of depression and various other psychiatric disorders have been linked to deficiency in vitamin D. It is extremely important for expecting mothers to maintain a sufficient level of vitamin D in their body, during the gestation period to reduce the risk of delayed brain development and other mental ailments in the new born babies.
  3. Cardiovascular disease: Cardiovascular ailments are more prevalent among people, who tend to suffer from vitamin D deficiency. Patients who suffer from cardiac discomfort have responded well to vitamin D treatment.
  4. Asthma: Intake of vitamin D supplements reduces the severity and discomforts that are associated with asthma and have also shown considerable reduction in the occurrence of asthma attacks.
  5. Periodontal disorders: Lack of vitamin D may result in the formation of numerous harmful bacteria in your mouth and may give rise to several oral discomforts in form of painful gum inflammation, bleeding and loss of tooth. Vitamin D aids in the formation of cathelicidins and defensins, which are effective in maintaining the overall oral health.
  6. Cancer: Types of cancer including prostate cancer, breast cancer and colon cancer are linked with vitamin D deficiency. Supplements of vitamin D are helpful in controlling the growth and development of breast cancer, especially the estrogen sensitive breast cancer.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Paleo diet has been found to be quite helpful in many people to reduce weight. It is basically a high fat and /or low carb or no carb diet. If one can stick withit, then it seems to be good enough. However, once the person is of that, there is always a possibility of regaining the lost weight. In your case I do not see the need for any such diet. Thanks.

The best method to find out the day of ovulation is temperature method. In this technique, womens body temperature is recorded every morning. When these temperatures are plotted on a graph we get a curve. The temperature is low during actual bleeding. Subsequently it rises. At about the middle of cycle there is a sudden fall in temperature followed by a rise. This rise in temperature indicates that ovulation has occurred. You can msg me to discuss in detail to know the exact day of your ovulation. I will help you.

I have irregular periods and hormonal imbalance I have tried a lot to loose weight but I can't so please guide me.

BHMS, DEMS

I have irregular periods and hormonal imbalance I have tried a lot to loose weight but I can't so please guide me.
Hello High androgen levels lead to symptoms such as body hair growth, acne, irregular periods -- and weight gain. Because the weight gain is triggered by male hormones, it is typically in the abdomen. That is where men tend to carry weight. 1. Decide on an appropriate calorie goal and stick to it. 2.Eat a low glycemic index diet. 3.Eat several small meals a day. 4.Load up on protein. 5.Choose resistant starches for carbs. 6.Give up soft drinks and other liquid calories. 7.Drink green tea. 8.Exercise daily. 9. Get plenty of rest. 10. Avoid crash or fad diets. 11. Women with PCOS who took flaxseed daily saw a decrease in both male hormones and in hirsutism, or unwanted facial and body hair. 12. Take homeopathic treatment for bets result.

Poor response to stimulation is related to ovarian reserve capacity and hormonal parameters in that particular cycle. It may be different in the next cycle. It is important to know your serum amh levels both too high and too low can cause stagnant or delayed response in stimulation and also the pattern of your menstrual cycles- to know whether you form egg on your own or would always require medicine and injections to do so.

Hello, your tsh and prolactin levels are high, they need to be controlled first and then amh levels are low. You can be given a trial of ovulation induction with natural intercourse but considering ovarian reserve is low, the success rates may be low.

Dear patient, yes you are right there are less chances of getting pregnant by having intercourse within 10 days of the menstrual cycle. But no one can guarantee that you don't get pregnant if you have sex in those days because it all depends upon the ovulation time period. It will be better if you take I pill within 72 hours or it is better to have sex with physical barriers like condom.
